Vaccination Rates Not Linked to Lower COVID Rates, Epidemiology Paper Finds

This article was originally published by Jon Miltimore at The Foundation for Economic Education. 

A new paper in the European Journal of Epidemiology that analyzed 168 countries and 2,947 US counties found that higher vaccination rates were not associated with fewer COVID-19 cases.

On Friday, the San Francisco Chronicle published an article noting that California has some of the lowest COVID-19 case rates in the US, even though the Golden State’s vaccination rate lags many states that are currently struggling with the delta variant.

“One clear example is the New England states of Vermont and Maine,” the Chronicle reported. “Relatively shielded from the worst of the nation’s previous surges, they have struggled against the delta variant, which has sent their case rates soaring.”

In fact, Vermont has the highest vaccination rate in the country. Among those 65 years and older, 99.9 percent are fully vaccinated, and 74 percent of those 18-64 are fully vaccinated, according to data from the Mayo Clinic.

Yet, as the Chronicle points out, despite its high vaccination rate, Vermont recently set its single-day case record for the entire pandemic. And as of Oct. 1, Vermont’s seven-day average case rate per 100k people was 30—triple that of the Bay Area.

There is widespread agreement among scientists that COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at reducing the risk of developing severe COVID symptoms, which can result in hospitalization and death.

Their effectiveness at reducing transmission of the virus, however, remains a subject of debate, particularly since the CDC released findings in July* that show vaccinated individuals still contract the virus, transmit it, and carry just as many virus particles in their throat and nasal passages as unvaccinated individuals do when they contract the virus.

While scientists concede that the vaccines cannot stop transmission, many contend they still reduce transmission of the virus.

The findings published in the European Journal of Epidemiology help explain why US states such as Vermont and Maine are suffering massive case outbreaks despite their high vaccination rates.

“We are confident vaccination against COVID-19 reduces the chances of transmitting the virus,” Johns Hopkins epidemiologists M. Kate Grabowski and Justin Lessler argued in The Daily Beast.

Other scientists are less sure, and new study suggests their skepticism may be warranted. The study, published last month in the European Journal of Epidemiology, a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal, examined 168 countries and 2,947 counties in the United States and concluded that higher vaccination rates are not associated with fewer COVID cases.

“At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between the percentage of the population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days,” the researchers concluded. “In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with a higher percentage of the population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.” (emphasis added)

At the county level, the researchers said, there “also appears to be no significant signaling of COVID-19 cases decreasing with higher percentages of the population fully vaccinated.”

The findings do not suggest people shouldn’t get vaccinated. Again, there’s robust evidence showing vaccines reduce the risk of severe symptomatic COVID-19 reaction. What the research does suggest, however, is that vaccines are primarily a matter of personal health, not public health.

This is precisely what Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine who studies epidemiology at Stanford, recently suggested. Bhattacharya noted that research indicates that the mRNA vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna offer abundant individual protection—Bhattacharya credits his own speedy recovery from COVID-19 to the vaccines—but don’t contribute to herd immunity or improve public health.

The findings published in the European Journal of Epidemiology help explain why US states such as Vermont and Maine are suffering massive case outbreaks despite their high vaccination rates. (Public health experts also point out that California has much higher levels of natural immunity than its eastern counterparts, the Chronicle reports.)

But it doesn’t explain why so many continue to maintain that the vaccines reduce transmission of the virus as well as offer protection to individuals—despite an abundance of evidence (both empirical and anecdotal) to the contrary.

If getting vaccinated is simply a matter of individual health, there is little reason for planners to exercise control over the public.

One explanation may be found in an observation from economist Ludwig von Mises.

Mises famously observed that much of the strife in the modern world is a struggle over who designs the world, authorities or individuals. As Mises put it, we can either have “the democratic process of the market, in which every individual has his share, [or] the exclusive rule of a dictatorial body.”

If getting vaccinated is simply a matter of individual health, there is little reason for “the planners” (as Mises called them) to exercise control over the public. It would be akin to requiring individuals to have cancerous tumors removed in the name of “public health”.

But if not getting vaccinated is a threat to public health, or “society,” then central planners have their reason (if not a valid justification) to exercise control over society.

In other words, evidence that shows COVID vaccination is primarily about individual health runs counter to the raison d’etre of the planners, which is to exercise their plan over society.

“What those calling themselves planners advocate is not the substitution of planned action for letting things go. It is the substitution of the planner’s own plan for the plans of his fellow-men,” Mises argued in Planned Chaos. “The planner is a potential dictator who wants to deprive all other people of the power to plan and act according to their own plans. He aims at one thing only: the exclusive absolute pre-eminence of his own plan.”

For people trying to understand why for the first time in modern history public health officials are trying to combat a respiratory virus by coercing healthy individuals to take their desired actions—and in many cases lose their job and basic freedoms if they do not—Ludwig von Mises is required reading.

*Correction: The CDC’s findings were released in July, not June. We regret the error.

      The vaccines have nothing to do with the virus as far as intention goes, WHAT is in those false vaccines is the issue that they want you to get. IF YOU don’t know by now that these fake vaccines are deadly and carry many un-known things from live cells to nano particles then your a sheep waiting to be fleeced and probably into your grave!. Some of these vaccine don’t even have ANYTHING in them they are just plain saline solution!

      Come-on Toto (the little dog in the WIZARD OF OZ), pull that curtain back a little farther and reveal more about the Tyrants of the Covid-cult.

      I think that it is far more evil and sinister than anyone has realized. Think about it. If they succeed in implementing all of the plans that Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates have been extremely vocal about, the world would be transformed into Jeffrey Epstein’s phantasmagoria that meets Brave New World, 1984, and Animal Farm. Almost of the adults would be dead from the bioweapons injections. Eugenics and medical tyranny would be permanent, removing anyone from society based on a false positive, and cybernetics and total information awareness, aka TIA, and enslavement of the population would also be implemented. Jeffrey Epstein was into more really sick things than many people realize. The fact that he was a pedophile is what people focus on, which is of course sick, but it goes way beyond that, and into enslavement, eugenics, cybernetics, and TIA.

      The psychos blasting me with these short wave radio signals and illegally implanted RFIDs while unconscious in the hospital on March 27, 2014,  that have coincided with vault7 hacking tools being used on everything that is electric that I own is most likely what they plan to do to the rest of society, and probably in the not so distant future.

      The CDC has recommended not testing bioweapon injected people for covid-19, and for those that they do test, they have reduced the transcriptions much lower than those that have not been injected.

      Covid-19 is fake.

      The CDC does not have the genetic sequence to it, and the tests are as scientific as drawing straws to determine the mythological virus.

      The mythological virus has the same symptoms as a wide array of other diseases, because those who have been symptomatic with positive tests, have a wide array of other diseases.

      As I have been saying for over 6 months, Brucellosis is a bacterial zoonotic disease found in many wild life, aquatic species, and farm animals.

      The outbreaks of illneses on cruise ships have been going on for over a decade and I believe that it s from Brucellosis, maybe from Sushi in every dining hall.

      The slaughter houses and meat packing industries also had a high group of symptomatic people accoring to reports. I suspect that they also had Brucellosis, or any typical zoonotic virus.

      SCAMDEMIC! Dark Comedy of Errors Horror Story!

      The Movers, the Shakers, and the Decision Makers are pretty pissed that the goons that they enlisted to perpetrate their hoist and treasury raiding were too mentally incompetent to do it without absolute irrefutable proof of fraud and mass murder through Munchausen Syndrome!

      What are we supposed to think of these feeble minded nincompoops while they attempt to maintain legitimacy?

      Can’t we just send them to the Fletcher Memorial Home for Incurable Tyrants?

      So, I have to say, that I personally have no objection that their enlistees in the medical mafia and government organized crime ring that conspired to commit mass murder through the mythological virus covid-19 are given the final solution that their smiling happy faces planned on forcing on the entire population, and have given to hundreds of millions of people! Now their smiling, happy, murdering faces turn to sheer terror and horror as they are expected to receive the final solution themselves! Funny, that they didn’t seem to be that dangerous according to the majority of them when they were injecting millions of others with them! Certainly not dangerous enough to start suing the government in order to protect their patients or state or local residents over it! Now, it is worth suing over for them, but just so that they can keep their jobs and get paid as murderers with Munchausen Syndrome! They are not suing to ban the final solution outright, like they should have done! They are not suing to end the testing that does not and cannot work! RT-PCR tests reverse transcribe RNA into DNA, and all coronaviruses are RNA viruses and do not contain any DNA at all, and since RT-PCR all tests have all been contaminated with N1, N2, and N3, which are sub-types of the prevalent enzyme neuraminidase and is also in strains of flu, specified as H1N1, H1N2, H1N3, and are not primers which they claimed, but contaminants which could result in distilled water yielding positive test results, and since not all types of immunity create antibodies, making even antibody negative tests questionable. The funny thing is that I figured these things out just by reading what CNN, Sputnik, and Washington Post, and reported on the tests but they failed to realize that those things which they wrote meant that the RT-PCR test design itself is as scientifically incapable of determining any RNA virus or any virus as drawing straws to determine whether someone has a virus would be. It was Dr. Derek Knaus that reported that the CDC did not have the genetic sequence to the virus and Global Research removed the article from their website, which I later found on LibertyInternational.com.

      They are not suing to end the masks that cause cavities, and oral and respiratory bacterial infections. They are not suing over the 14th amendment rights violations of the lockdowns, distancing, contact tracing, masking, and medical tyranny of it all, forced injections or no forced injections, because they want it to continue, but not to the point of endangering their source of income. 

      I would prefer it if they would come forward and admit the truth about it, and for them to be charged for the mass murder and theft that they conspired over!

      I have been blowing the whistle on this whole thing since the onset of it, and knew that it was to cover-up for yet another round of financial fraud!

      But, ridding the world of evil, mass murdering, thieves can’t be a bad thing.

      The History of Sadistic, Reckless Behavior by The Medical Mafia 

      Peter McCullough MD claims that the methods for research and reporting being used for the covid lethal bioweapon injections is different than it normally is, and he is dead wrong! It is the norm, regardless of what anyone in the medical mafia attempts to claim. Of course, anyone in the medical mafia has a very good reason to claim that the covid bioweapons are out of the norm. The one difference was the speed with which they were pushed through. Peter McCullough is a complete fraud, because covid-19 is a mythological virus that does not exist, and Peter McCullough claims to be the world’s leading authority on covid-19. Well, I guess that would also make Coast to Coast the world’s leading authority on lizard people.

      The entire medical and scientific community should have been screaming foul when it was reported that the bioweapons had to be stored at minus 94 degrees and minus 70 degrees for the m-RNA shots made by Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna. It should have sounded alarms when it was reported that those shots contain 
      polyethylene glycol which is the active ingredient in anti-freeze.

      The Astra-Zeneca shots use adeno virus vectors. Adeno viruses are DNA viruses and all corona viruses are RNA viruses that do not contain any DNA what so ever. That is not to say that these are harmless. Myocarditis and pericarditis have been reported to have taken place when recipients are injected. The m-RNA shots have had the same problem with inflamation of the lining of the heart and blood clotting. 

      The entire research community, pharmaceutical industry, medical
      community, and universities have been using scientific fraud, data fudging and manipulation, ad hoc conclusions, charlatanism, malfeasance, incompetency, gross negligence, profiteering, and racketeering, and Munchausen Syndrome for their entire history on a mass scale.

      Some recent prominent examples that have led to equally tragic outcomes for individuals that were victims of their malfeasance are the Oxycontin claim that they created non-addictive opioids, and that opioids could be prescribed for chronic pain without resulting in drug addiction. Then they developed Suboxone used to treat those addicts, which was even more addictive than Oxycontin. Methadone was a similar drug that was supposed to be a miracle cure for heroin addiction that was also more addictive than heroin. 

      The myth that psychotropic drugs improve mental well being and that their black box warning side effects are rare, and that it is medically and legally acceptable to force people to take psychotropic drugs through court order on people that have never committed any crime, including ADHD drugs for children has destroyed many lives as well.

      Those are just a few examples of similar behavior by those industries. That behavior is the norm for everyone in those industries. Now, the medical community is outraged that they are expected to be treated the same way that they have all treated their patients.

      In the past, forced sterilizations were performed on people.

      Forced hospitalizations and institutionalizations of law abiding citizens have happened throughout history, and have continued to the present day, and the state has had a history of forcefully removing children from law abiding parents and turning them into wards of the state and that has still continued to the present day. 

      The medical mafia and nazi eugenic university concentration camps have also performed radiation experimients on people without their informed consent during the cold war. Many of their victims were pregnant women and newborns. Ironically and tragically, this occurred after The Nuremberg Trials. The United States never even bothered signing onto the Nuremberg Code which they forced Geramy to sign onto.

      The medical mafia and nazi eugenic university concentration camps have also performed the Bad Blood Experiment, also known as the Tuskegee Experiment, deliberately infecting blacks and whites with syphilis because they hypothesized that syphilis affected blacks physically and whites mentally. 

      The medical mafia and nazi eugenic university concentration camps have also performed the MKULTRA Mind Control Experiments using LSD and sadistic psychological experimentation on people including forced isolation, sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation.

      The medical mafia and nazi eugenic university concentration camps have also performed other sadistic psychological experimients on animals and people strictly for their love of sadistic experiments on animals and people.

      The medical mafia and nazi eugenic university concentration camps have also performed experiments using mind reading technology and brain implants on people without informed consent, which of course nobody would ever be willing to consent to! 

      If left to their own devices, there is no limit to their monstrosities. Nothing is off the table as far as they are concerned. They should have no limits, no boundaries, and no accountability as far as they are concerned, which is the typical mindset of narcissistic serial criminal psychopaths that should be in prison since they pose grave dangers to the society at large.

      It is not their love for medicine or science that drives them to commit these crimes, it is their love for themselves, and their love for watching people suffer since it is a mob filled with sadistic monsters, and their love for controlling other people that leads them to commit these evil monstrosities.

      A monthly print propaganda publication called The Grafton Record, aimed at trying to make Grafton, Wisconsin look legitimate inadvertently reveals how animus the medical mafia has become. The featured couple whose name I shall not disclose stated that last year they called 911 when the husband went into cardiac arrest. An EMT worker in the neighborhood that worked on him said that the husband featured in the article was his only save that survived. Every month the Grafton Record features indivuduals and families in the “community” that they use in attempts to portray life in Grafton the same as The Waltons, or Little House on the Prairie, tv shows, and ignores that it is one massive organized crime ring.

      Unsurprisingly, almost every family, couple, or individual that they feature is a Grafton employee, or retired Grafton employee. 
      Whaddayaknow?! It is so hoakey! Not the individuals, but the entireity of it in contrast to the reality of it! 

      Apparently the message is supposed to be that Grafton residents purpose is to serve Grafton public employees, if that was the mission, mission accomplished! That is in fact the true attitude that they have demonstrated.

      The movie Fargo would be a closer depiction to the reality of Grafton than The Waltons, or Little House on the Prairie, or Happy Days, or Lavern and Shirley, the last three shows took place in Wisconsin. Quite an act! What is the need for so much tv propaganda in order to portray Wisconsin as legitimate? Because it is as illegitimate as it gets! More corrupt than Illinois!

      Like claiming that The Cosby Show’s Huxtables represented the typical black family in Illinois! Propaganda!

      A woman was shot and killed by a Minneapolis cop After calling 911 to report someone being raped in the alley a few years ago.

      I understand that the Bureaucrats are in danger! 

      I volunteered to come up with a slogan propaganda campaign to save the bureaucrats!

      The Surveillance State Loves You to Death! Inspiring Suicide, Addiction, and Abortions Every Day!

      I would really like to exit this fucked up loonie bin prison planet now. So sick of having to try to survive with the legions of leeches in the surveillance state! 

      Please start the euthenasia program tomorrow. I understand that is your goal to depopulate the planet. You may have far more willing volunteers than you realize! I volunteer to get away from this sick planet full of psychos! It would be much better than trying to coexist with you while being tortured, terrorized, and leeched by you! This is intolerable. Oh, forgot to mention all of the school shootings and mass murders that you undoubtedly inspired! If death is the only way to get away from you gad damned fucking scumbags, sign me up! I’ll take it! It beats the hell out of being around scum like you! It feels like trying to live while being slowly strangled by a boa constrictor! I reject everything that you are! 

      Whaddayathink about the slogan?
